Mr. Joel A. Martin was a prominent member of Redwine United Methodist Church, and when he passed away in 1970, a portion of his will was bequeathed to the Church. Due to Mr. Martin’s generosity, and the faithful members of Redwine, a new Sanctuary was built in 1974. The new Sanctuary included central heat and air, complete new furnishings, a new organ and piano, and a beautiful new courtyard. Also included at this time was a new fellowship hall, completely furnished with dining tables and chairs that would seat 90 people and a fully furnished kitchen. The new sanctuary, new fellowship hall, and the existing educational wing were completely encapsulated with a brick exterior at a total cost of $148,000.
